School Overview

Founded in 1905, the National University of Singapore is Singapore's oldest and most prestigious university and Asia's premier institution of higher learning. The predecessor of the National University can be traced back to the establishment of the King Edward VII School of Medicine in 1905 and the establishment of Raffles College in 1927. The two colleges merged to form the University of Malaya in 1949 and were renamed the University of Singapore in 1962. In August 1980, the University of Singapore and Nanyang University, established in 1956, were formally merged to form the National University of Singapore. The University has 11 colleges offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs, 1,700 doctoral and postdoctoral experts and scholars, and 500 researchers.

There are two main residential areas on the campus. One is Prince George's Park Residence (PGP) and the other is U town(think Graduate hall or Graduate Residence). NUS also has a bukit timah campus. It is home to the law School and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Policy. Kent Ridge is still the main campus, so most of the people would be here. PGP is inhabited by undergraduates and married graduate students. Some exchange students will also be placed in PGP. Other single graduate students, I don't think they can live in PGP. However, it's OK not to live, PGP's single dormitory can not compare to U town. The room is small.

The National University of Singapore is a public university under the Ministry of Education of Singapore. Located in Kent Ridge in the southwest of Singapore Island, the campus covers an area of 150 hectares, and the layout of the buildings is based on the trend of the mountains. The campus is adjacent to a number of science and technology parks, such as Singapore Science Park I and II, Keio Biomedical Research Park and Keio Information Media Park. There is Internet in all directions on the campus of the National University, and the backbone speed can reach 24GB per second. 35,000 wired Internet jacks and 400 wireless Internet transmitters allow teachers and students to get first-hand real-time information at any time, anywhere in school. The University's Central Library, Chinese Library, Medical Library, Science Library, Xu Yunchun Law Library, and Han Ruisheng Memorial Library have a total of 1,228,130 volumes, 62,345 members, and 1.22 million loans per year.

The language of instruction at the National University of Singapore is English, and it adopts Anglo-American style generalist education. She adopted the credit system and the bidding course selection system, and guided students to choose courses according to their interests. She adopted the British 5-point system and the honours degree system, awarding different levels of undergraduate degrees based on the students' Cumulative Average Points (CAP). In addition to engineering, medicine and a few other majors, the undergraduate period of study is generally three years, excellent results can be added one year to obtain an honorary degree. Undergraduate degrees are divided into First Class Honours, Second Class First Class Honours, Second Class Second Class Honours, Third Class Honours, Pass etc. A good honours degree is often linked to a higher starting salary for employment, which also greatly increases students' motivation to study. Students are encouraged to participate in internships or exchange programs in their third year of undergraduate studies to lay the foundation for employment or further study. Graduate and doctoral students usually have two supervisors, one in their department and one in a related institute or even in a private enterprise. The close combination of theory and practice makes graduates from various faculties of the National University of Singapore highly sought-after in the job market. In addition to study and research, students are encouraged to participate in various extracurricular activities, such as clubs, volunteers, interest groups, etc. In Singapore, the level of CCA points and academic performance are both the reference criteria for employers when hiring.
